This was our first time at 'Farmer Vic's, but it won't be our last. The Farmhouse South Wing suited our requirments perfectly. All the bedrooms are a good size and beds, bedding and towels of a very good quality and there was a TV in every room.There was plenty of hot water and the house was nice and toasty (a bit too warm sometimes, so next time we need to get the hang of the heating timer!) The large dining table seated us all easily for our evening meals and there were plenty of comfy seats for us to retire to afterwards for playing games and watching TV. The kitchen was well equipped and the addition of a drinks fridge meant there was plenty of room in the main fridge and freezer for our other stuff. The only items we felt were lacking in the kitchen (or we couldn't find them!) were a chopping board and a tray. The animals outside were a delight, free roaming peacocks and ducks, meerkats, sheep, guinea fowl in the field right outside our door. Lovely Farmer Vic arrived just as we were about to have breakfast on our first morning with a dozen freshly laid eggs and spent some time answering our questions about the animals. We are already planning our return visit for next year

Shops and food places are just a short commute. Walk around the reservoir is absolutely refreshing. Tim and his wife were fantastic hosts! Will be coming here again in summer for sure.

The rooms are very nicely decorated and impeccably clean. The kitchen is modern and very well equipped. What also impressed us was the preparation of the cottage before we arrived. We were there with my parents and children for Christmas and were expecting to have to pop out and get a tree and decorations. However, everything had been done for us - the whole place had been decorated. We just had to drop our bags and start to relax. John and Liz were just next door and were very friendly and were very happy to help, organising some logs for us. We really couldn't have wished it to be any better. I would certainly consider coming back but this time in the warmer months as there are great opportunities to go out walking and cycling in the area. Thanks for making it such a lovely Christmas.
